      1. Think of it like primitive camping in your house…

        • EPPE
          Good point.
          Have watch Fear the Walking Dead. My goodness these people playing these rolls are just as dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to surviving in a collapse. I believe the Zombies and leaches will come out of these people that haven’t Prepped!

          • It seems Dave has forgotten all f his predictions of what would happen the last 60 days. From Jade Helm to Shemitah. Now he’s hoping you won’t notice either.

            • I’m thinking the very same thing. I’ve read this site for some years now and I’m still waiting for them to get it right. Even ONCE would do wonders for their credibility.

              • Look. All you need to do is be way more prepared than 90% of the population. Like as if a bear is chasing 10 people, you just need to be faster than the slowest weakest one in the group. And out last the other 90%. I have everything on Hodges list. Life is good and now I’m preparing to deal with the remaining 10% cause I aint taking crap from nobody period. Yeah enough ammo to wipe out the entire small town closest to me. One by one if needed. Lots of good people up here where I am at. A welder mechanic down the road. Lots of old folks here watch everything and my back. Finishing up the Gauntlet 6 ft tall barbed wire gate. Bad ass and painted OD Green. Hell even my solar system is painted camo. Put the gas charcoal smoker grill together today and Turkey cross bow season starts this Sat. All dialed in and sitting tight. Been shopping for a new young smoking hot GF half my age for playtime. Plenty out there for sure. A glass of Cabernet and a good cigar watching nature stroll by daily. If I can do it so can you. Get out of the Big population centers ASAP. Thats where the mass murder begins from the Free Shitola Army of thieves rape and pillage. Almost 7 mos at my country remote hidy hold BOL.

                ~WWTI – Stay safe people.

                • “Despite efforts by FEMA and other organizations to educate American citizens on becoming prepared, growth in specific preparedness behaviors has been limited.”

                  WELL GEE, they call us terrorists for having more than 3 days worth of food, and put us on a govt watch list! The same list they put us on for “hoarding” cash, gold or ammo.

                  HOW SCHIZOPHRENIC IS THAT?

                  How are people supposed to respond, Dave? They tell people to stock up, THEN CRIMINALIZE THEM WHEN THEY DO.

                  Another Dave Hodges failure.

                  • After another.

                    howdy 6 : I learned along time ago that silver is only worth what the next guy is willing to pay, when you really need it. Guaranteed it will be way under spot. I believe in stocking the neccessities. Beans, rice, bullets, TP, etc, etc, etc. Everybody has their own list of what they need for there situation.

                    My question would be, why gold. are you going to take a piece of sand paper and purchase with a couple of grains. Wouldn’t gold be for very large purchases? If you believe in pm’s ( and I do have a little ), why would you not make it all silver. I mean if gold is going through the roof ( what does Dave and some of the others say 6,000 and up per ounce ), what purchase would be that expensive? I guess if you were a millionaire, you could consolidate for weight purposes, but what else would be the point?

                    How about us all starting home businesses? It usually takes three years for a business to become profitable, especially if you have to purchase product or equipment.

                    How do you create a pseudo identity in these digital times?

                    The best one is for us poor folks, pay off everything right now, that will give you more money for supplies. We do own our home, except for the 20 + years left on the mortgage. If their is a true collapse, who is going to come and foreclose on my home. Are they still going to go through the courts. If so, it takes a couple of years in todays times. What about when 100,000,000 homes need to be forclosed on? When TSHTF, if I can stay in my home, I sure would not come to my door to try and foreclose on.

                    People say one thing in one breath and a totaly different thing in the next breath. If The $h!t hits the fan, either the government, millitary, national guard, and local leos are going to be overwhelmed or not. The banks are going to be closed and take you home from you. Their is going to be no electricity but put a solar panel on your roof ( and a big sign saying we are here ), and grow enough food to feed or suppliment your food stores. We have 3 gardens and still go grocery shopping every week. Most people don’t relize what they are saying or shoveling.

                    • How do you create a pseudo identity in these digital times?

                      Go live with the homeless for a year. Drink, smoke and do drugs. You too can have multiple identities and have a crazy time obtaining them.

                    • Robots are going to replace more workers very soon.

                      If you go in big with a bank loan and huge overhead, there’s a greater chance of failure than of success. But if you start very small with something you know a lot about, there’s no reason you can’t earn a little change on the side. I have seen people turn their hobbies into small sources of additional income. A few grew into big business.

                • City’s will become the new Killing Fields. Funny how many are unarmed.

                • actually you need to be faster than the 90%…not faster than the slowest one…because the 90% are going to be eaten…..so if 10 are running…and you’re number 10 through 2…you’ll be eaten….#1 is what you need to be aiming for…..

            • Muddy,

              Dave Hodges is also one of hcks ” trusted” insiders, along with secret squirrel scientist friend and ” oil source Guy”. But hey, not to worry, right, after all, Texas has all the gold and Niburu will be showing up in April so Jade Helm, Shemitah, and dreadlox zombie invasions all MUST be true, and don’t forget USASECURITYGAURD’s warning that if we want to live we must move as far north as possible ” shortly” before the big polar shift occurs and we’re all fried to death by radiation. All these reports will soon be ” confirmed” on this site by ” expert” posters who know for a fact that hcks is the ” real deal”.

              • You should rename to Feast of foolishness.

                • You should wipe your sorry old smelly ass and get out of your hermit hole.

            • I no longer follow Dave Hodges after an experience a few weeks back. He posted a story of tanks being moved in support of JH, the picture was allegedly sent in by a reader and the tank was spotted on the highway somewhere.
              Having been a tanker myself a couple decades ago, I pointed out that that particular tank was an older model no longer in service for several decades that was probably being hauled to a static display site. The response I got from him (copied and pasted direct from email) “I should have used an UN tank- I don’t know tanks very well and you are correct”. Not long after I got this response, that section of the day’s post was gone.
              I feel that he in no way can be relied on for good intel.

              • ChuckInBama


                Where can you get reliable Intel? That is the problem. Rumor, Suspicion, Lies, Misdirection and Innuendo, comprise most of the information we read.

                • A bible… Just sayin’

              • ChuckInBama,

                I can see why it looks like he was lying, but it probably just looks that way. He gets hundreds of emails a day, so he has probably received plenty of UN tank photos he could have used instead. What I believe he meant was that since he doesn’t know tanks well, he believed the photo he received really was for Jade Helm, since he didn’t know any better (and the guy who sent it in might not have realized either). So he should have checked it out, found out it wasn’t for Jade Helm, and posted a photo from a different email. The good thing is, he acknowledged his mistake and removed the post, instead of leaving it up and being deceptive.

          • Sgt.,
            Been watching “Fear the Walking Dead”. It’s great fun watching the dysfunctional try to survive.

            They already broke into the neighbors house to steal his shotgun and ammunition. The daughters walking around like she has a hot date at the mall with her zombie boyfriend who we all know is going to show up, the druggy son is only worried about his next fix, the mother who has played a roll in killing at least 3 zombies was still hiding the fact that people were turning into zombies from the daughter, and the father still doesn’t like guns.

            What a hoot. The military just showed up and it’s shelter in place for the people with no food or supplies. They missed the tiny window in which they could have escaped to the desert. Still no one has filled the bathtub with water while water still runs!

            • And they let in a dog they didn’t know anything about. Who opens the door to let a german shepherd run in?

              The druggie can manage to play monopoly but can’t wash his hair?

            • Plan and Mighty

              They are acting just like 90% of the people will act when the SHTF. I bet before long the Dad will love guns!!!
              I wish the druggy would take off the old mans clothing that he stole from the hospital and clean up!!!!

              • Have you seen the show “The Last Ship”, they came across a dozen kids living in a marina who were starving….. There must have been dozens of boats with all kinds of fishing gear….. And they were starving?

                It seems the only place starving people look for food is in empty grocery stores, where they invariably run into the last people on earth who are always hell bent on murdering everyone they meet.

                • I watched a program about all the folks affected by that BP oil spill. All these suffering people,Not one garden in site. I guess it’s to much like work.
                  I give away food and people don’t want it. Most don’t even know how to cook veggies.

            • yup, a bunch of true AMERICAN dumb masses….just like it will be in REAL-LIFE! fricken bunch of 90%ers!

              • Excellent point, twice in my life I’ve been trying to get home in a blizzard from work, when some fool comes up on my butt with his invincible SUV. He’s flashing his lights and tailgating me like he wants me to drive into a snow bank to let him by.

                As soon as there is an opportunity, I pull over and let them by. As he goes by, they are giving the finger, yelling obscenities out the window, shaking their fist at me!

                Well twice now when this happened as soon as I come to the next sharp turn, there they are in the snow bank with the SUV upside down and on the roof.

                They stare blankly at me, hanging by their seat belts, as I cruise on by without stopping. Why didn’t I stop, well these people weren’t in any real danger, police would be along, and already they had shown potentially dangerous anger and attitude. I had no desire to end up beaten, knifed or murdered by some fool who might have thought his stupidity was my fault.

                A lot of people gonna end up, upside down, even if they think they prepped by having that great SUV as a choice survival tool in the blizzard! Good tools only work for those smart enough to use them right. The above is a true story! Lots of people are going to be acting like TV and the movies taught them to act in a disaster, it’s gonna get surreal!

          • Sgt. Dale; I’ve got to agree, those folks are dumber than a bag of hammers. Anyone who still lives in or near a large city but doesn’t necessarily have to, is asking for it. Those that do need a place to ‘vacation’ when things get hot in the big city. As a young person I read Alas Babylon a dozen times and watched Panic In Year Zero twice that many times. BTW, I grew up just north of L.A. so these seem more real to me. Now I live in a small town in northern Florida.

        • I happen to believe in the Lord God Almighty. So much so, that I try to honor my family, my friends, and my country in the ways He would have me do. I screw up from time to time, like we all do, but He also knows that I am faulty and partly selfish. At times I can even be a little prideful.
          However, I absolutely refuse to dishonor the vows I said before God on my wedding day, nor will I dishonor the oath I swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of These United States of America by following a cotton candy, low brow version of 501c3 branded christianity which adamently, and willfully misinterprets the scripture (namely Roman chapter 13) for the benefit of people whom seek to do nothing more than enslave me and mine.
          I get that people have differing opinions, as is their right, but I will not be barred the use ofmy skills, my strenghth, and my warrior spirit to protect those that I Love and hold mostdear.
          So, my friends, I will continue to prep, I will continue to train, and I will continue and always endeavor to be the most honorable man, husband, and not lastly, but most importantly, humble servant to the One True God of this earth, and my life, and His son Jesus Christ.

          • Well done good and faithful servant.

      2. Ok you doom a gloomers, half of September is gone. No crisis in sight. Stocks up 200 points today. Hillary is catching her second wind, she’ll take this country down the right path under Bills guidance. You so called preppers need to get a job and stop the doom crap.

        • thanks so much for the advice, I feel so much better now. You have caused all my fears to vanish.

        • For now everything seems to be okay but this IS subject to change!

          Don’t be an idiot!

        • I use my preps everyday, on an ongoing basis.

          Except for shooting people that come to my door. 🙂

          Prep on people.

        • Welcome to the site, Americanism. What made you search for this site? The thought that everything is perfect and running like a Swiss watch?

        • Actually, wild swings in the stock market, both up and down, are to be expected before a big crash…200 points isn’t that drastic, but it is a sign…and not a good one. Of course, since you’re one of those people swinging from Hillary’s nuts, no kind of evidence will sway you either way. Therefore all I can say is there is nothing wrong with people praying for the best and preparing for the worst, and most certainly nothing wrong with learning to live sustainably and free of the system! So to you, I say get a life, stop trolling, and pray you never need the help that any of the good people on this site could provide…

        • Karma will get you Americanism.

          • Americanism is probably a paid government troll. If not a government troll, he is probably a welfare leach.

          • There is no such thing as karma. It is just a myth and salve to try and make people who have been wronged and unable to get justice feel like they will one day. Unfortunately for every person that actually gets justice, there are thousands who receive no such comfort.

        • We will be putting holes through people such as yourself americanism. Then burning your bodies so we don’t get a disease from your corpses.

          • Hell, we may just f u c k i n g eat you.

            • Yeah right, big talk from an even bigger pussy. What was that you said once, you couldn’t go on your big vengeance shooting spree ” yet” because there was still law enforcement around and you’re too damn old to let those big negroes butt fuck your old ass every day.

          • Lol, oh man that was funny. Good laugh before I go to bed.

        • I guess you are right and we should bow to your superior intellect. I’m going to throw all my preps away and be just as unprepared as you, since you are a great example to emulate.

        • Boy are the Trolls out or what ! Americanism if the folks on this site want to talk about Doom an gloom ! So fucking what! It’s their choice also charlie2 if they want to believe in God so what ! It’s their right to make their choice! Trolls scum of the earth ! Fuckum

        • Americanism, I’ll try to be civil and welcome you, but let me point out none of the regulars here are the ones who wrote the article. I suggest going after the author. Otherwise, if you don’t like our site, then don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

          • wait a minnit thar cuz! ya’ll didn’t threaten him with an accident frum yer ventalayshun teem and lead nuterents!

        • Americanism, none of what you mentioned did me, or mine any damn good. I grew up poor for much of my childhood and I hoarded and stockpiled probably from having gone through the pain and embarassment of being the kid at school with holey clothes, etc.
          Whether it’s the Russians coming, Nibiru, or just a late paycheck, I want to never be without again! The idea of what I have been doing since boyhood becoming fashionable is just icing on the cake.
          As my moniker implies, I’m a blue collar guy. If the DOW hits 40,000, it just means they stole that much more from me. I hope you were being sarcastic.

          • It’s about time someone figured out what I meant what I wrote. I’ve been sitting back reading all the threats and stupid remarks from my fellow preppers. Nobody but OLD COP ever thought of the word sarcastic.

            I was actually surprised that so many so called Christians would react the way they did,

            My real feels, I am terrified of the thought of the Clintons getting back in power, I am terrified of what Odumbo has in store for us next year.

            I prepped, armed and ready.

            Good job Old Cop, it was fun while it ran.

            • Sarcasm is rarely apparent in posts on boards like this one.

              Here’s an example of a sarcastic remark that is obvious!

              You’re doing an excellent job getting all your preps from the dollar store /sarc.

              Yup just note that it’s sarcastic, we’ve all been burned by backfired sarcastic remarks. It gets worse if it includes condemnation of other posts or threats, even if intended in sarcastic humor, perhaps the most misinterpreted type of remark.

        • Apparently someone didnt watch the news today. They said just enough to contradict your statement just a day after you posted your comment too, oh joy!

        • Hillary is BREAKING her second wind. FBI learned she failed to properly wipe her server. She’s likely doomed. Since your hero Brokeback Hussein Obama can’t run again, Prez Trump will save the day.

      3. I’m on this site so #13 won’t work, and anyone else here is S.O.L. on #13.
        #15 Produce your own energy.
        #16 Get an make as much water purification equipment that you can.


        • yeah, regarding #13, I thought we were supposed to encourage others to prepare and also to form groups. That is very hard to do if you don’t talk to anyone.

          • Muddy
            You commit is dead on. WTH. Don’t say anything no one will prep or form groups. What is up with that!!!!!

        • #17 Install a woodstove or insert and stack some firewood.

        • No. 13 is OK, keep your mouth shut. If you believe the government is going to track you down by your posts on this site and seize all your goodies, you’re a bit paranoid. If they actually do that, it didn’t matter what you thought about it, they’re going door to door for everybody’s stuff.

          When SHTF, the government is not going to be a problem. It’s the lack of government that will be the problem. We’re going to have to deal with a whole lot of things by ourselves or our small groups that we never thought we’d need to do, such as police, justice, neighborhood defense, food production, etc., etc.

          • True. Govt will be looking out for itself–just as we should.

      4. Federal law requires that the bank file a report based upon any withdrawal or deposit of $10,000 or more on any single given day.The law was designed to put a damper on money laundering, sophisticated counterfeiting and other federal crimes.

        Gee…. maybe somebody oughta tell Obama crony Johnny-Boy (Sorry, I lost your $1.6 billion) Corzini about this…. d’ya think? Heck, at least let those BIG GREEN MONEY Solyndra scamsters know!

        • On withdrawing money from my account, I don’t care what anyone’s law says. No. 5 doesn’t apply to me since nobody ever lets me use credit anyway. I’m already debt-free so I can get more preps at one time than I would’ve been able to otherwise. My prepping is top priority for me so I never let anything interfere with it.

      5. Survival is never guaranteed, salvation is! And do not forget one of your most important resources, your Bible

        This is nothing more than a belief, there is no such thing as salvation, at least not the religious kind, because there is no religious god to dish out that salvation. you did good until you included the religion, and anytime anyone brings religion into a discuss its over, because religious people are the most delluded people on this planet, people who believe in fairy tales with no proof cannot be trusted with anything especially your life, most of the so called religious people i have known lie. All religions are based on nothing but a belief system, only a fool would wager their existance on a belief. Beliefs are never real, it is merely an assumption of knowledge never real knowledge or experience. Sure now you are going to tell me all about all those emotional experiences you had that told you god was real, and how god talks to you, There are no christians on this earth today, they are merely religious hypocrites. Sure now you are going to tell me how you are forgiven for all your crap by simply saying i believe. All religions are nothing but cults, full of hypocrites who are existing on a lower level of human consciousness.

        • Lumberjack says:
          Dear Charlie2dogs,

          Faith is given to us by God, but religions are man made. The word, denomination, denotes division. God can’t be divided. He said, A house divided can’t stand. Many people have faith, but do not believe in religion. Religion is man made whereas faith is a spiritual concept. Religion has an institutionalized background, a conformity of a system of attitudes, beliefs and practices.

          Religion with its written doctrine will inform you what you are to believe. Faith is an actual deep knowing that you trust in your own belief in God.

          Being a follower of Christ has nothing to do with religious sects. It is a way of life, each and every day. Thought you could use a little enlightenment. Have some Faith.

          • lumberjack you are religious, end of story, the rest is horseshit

            • You still don’t get it. there will come a day when you wished you had listened and had some faith in God. No religion tells me what to do, only the Bible. BIBLE – Basic Instructioons Before Leaving Earth.

              • Thanks Lumberjack, BIBLE is our only hope, we are just visitors here on earth, looking for a home that will last for eternity and that is longer than any 25 year food stuff.

                • In the new testament jesus mentions about 10 or more different things to different people that you must do to get to heaven. Can you tell me which one is correct? Or if you have to do all of them?

                  Can someone please explain to me why he killed the fig tree when it had no fruit on it (it was not in season yet)?

                  Plus why didn’t jesus or any of his disciples actually write anything down? Here they had god in the flesh but not one of them (or even god himself) bothered to even take notes?

                  • His apostles wrote the Gospels. No one gets to the Father, except through Jesus, and Jesus only requires you to follow his commandments, profess that you believe He’s the Son Of God, and that his torture and death were his sacrifice for the sins of all mankind, and he rose from the dead to prove to those who knew him that his word was true. If you read nothing else of The Bible, read The New Testament. Good luck to you!

                    • Sorry no the apostles did not write the chapters in the bible attributed to them.

                      What about Matthew 19 that gives the rich man the requirements to get into heaven which are to follow the 10 commandments and sell everything he has and give it to the poor? No mention of believing in jesus himself as a requirement.

              • I like that. Never heard the before. Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!

        • That was so good. You are such a philosopher: not.
          What is it that you believe? nothing. Glad you were able to contribute so much to this thread…

          • i dont believe, everything that you believe is a lie, stop lying to yourself

            • Stop lying to yourself about others lying to themselves. You’re not the arbiter of anyone’s life or belief systems except your own.

              Mind your own business.

              • Nice one smoke.

            • Get outta here troll!

            • Pull your head out of your ass, Chuckie. Your thinking is starting to stink…

        • C2K2’s
          Do you really believe that!

        • I’ve begun to not care if someone chooses to be an unbeliever. You can talk ’til the cows come home and all they do is insult so…..whatever. Don’t believe then. I have had personal experiences with God and I know what I know. If all you do in life is criticize and shoot others down, who is the unhappy one? Don’t have the time of day for it.

      6. Dave Hodges what you get when The Boy Who Cried Wolf and Chicken Little produce offspring. If you’d have believed his stuff last year, we’d all be dead of Ebola right now. If you’d have believed his stuff this year, we’d all be locked up in some Wal Mart by Jade Helm forces. The dude is pathetic. When I saw he wrote this, I just skipped to the comments section…….

      7. That Ray Charles…He sees a lot of stuff!

      8. There is an extended long term camping trip coming to everyone, on a global scale. Americanism sounds typical of the normalcy bias in this country. Rather trying to learn from the people who regularly post on this sight, trying to discredit them is just a fools folly. I’ve learned a long time ago that you can’t argue with a fool, they argue just for the sake of arguing. A lot of people here are the Salt of the Earth kind of people. He will learn more by listening with his ears and keeping his mouth shut. Americanism, you are going to need all the help you can get in the days ahead. Why fool yourself. You need Jesus more now than you will ever know. Its hard for a proud fool to REPENT of their SINS and ask Jesus for forgiveness. But when you’re a broken vessel its a whole lot easier. The being broken part is just a hard place to go through. If you seek Jesus with all you’re heart, you will find HIM.

        • Yep
          If you argue with an idiot , they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

      9. a bigger fools accepts the belief that he is a sinner and was born a sinner.

        • Ps 53:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God…

          that word fool means a stupid, wicked (especially impious), vile person.

          I am feeling so sorry for you right now.

          The greatest sin of all is unbelief.

          • Man was born with all of the exact same traits and characteristics that god is portrayed with having in the bible, koran, torah, and every single religious text that was written by man.

            Thus to call our behavior a sin and vile is calling god the same.

            Without evil there could be no good. Even the most vilest and repugnant of human beings is capable of an act of redemption (given the right set of circumstances).

            Even in nature there is an opposite for each and every single plant, animal, masculine, feminine, microbe, bacteria, parasite, etc.

            Look within for god not outside yourself. It is not in a book, nor is it in church on Sunday morning.

            • Where is God portrayed in The Bible as having the same traits as man? I need chapter and verse here. Please diagram the sentence: “Even in nature there is an opposite for each and every single plant, animal, masculine, feminine, microbe, bacteria, parasite, etc.”. What DOES that mean, exactly? What do you mean by “opposite”?

          • only a religious fanatic would write such, belief is never real, its information you accepted as truth but is a lie for you. Religion is based on nothing but faith and belief, you have imprisoned yourself with your beliefs, now suffer the fate of your false beliefs, even if there was a real god he would have no respect for someone who would believe any horseshit handed out to them and accepted on faith, wake up man, you are simply a religious person with a faith and a belief, no real knowledge or experience. That voice that talks to you is your ego and your false belief system.

            • Did you even read what I wrote? In case you are confused here is what I think: there is no god as he is written about in religious texts. We are all souls having a human experience. We do not need an intercessor. We are the intercessor we seek. Some say we are souls trapped here by another race of beings destined to be a slave race. Others say we walked into this dimension from another. While still others say we are the ancestors of humans who once lived on other planets (which were destroyed by their own hand) and the survivors were put on another habitable planet.

              There are many scenarios about this human life we can entertain and should consider.

              One thing I do know is that all education, governments and religion in this world was created to keep us from discovering who and what we really are and why we are in the first place.

              • RJ.
                I wasn’t bothered about either looking or believing in a God.
                I don’t come from a religious family or have any connection with religious people in any way.
                But one day my life was turned upside down by the Lord Jesus.
                Call me whatever you want, I don’t care, but I do know for sure HE is real.
                I’m ever so glad he invited me to follow him.
                I’ll never be the same again… Thankfully.
                Just letting you into my unexpected experience as honestly as I can.

                • I was so hard-headed, I had to actually DIE and come back, before I would sort out my beliefs.

                  Just wondering what it took for you.

                  • sixpack.
                    Nothing anywhere near as dramatic as your experience.
                    I know you’ve been to the other side a couple of times from reading your previous posts.
                    ’tis good to know you’re ready for all of life.
                    I can only say that I was given an opportunity to see myself for what I was through the eyes of a pure person and didn’t like what I saw.
                    I was desperate for help but didn’t know where to find it.
                    One evening while sitting at home something weird happened.
                    A dark triangular shaped shadow came out of me and floated away.
                    From that very moment I was filled with joy, peace and love.
                    I know for sure it was Jesus who helped me, I now follow him the best I can, not very well at times, but I try.
                    Sorry for the delay in responding.
                    Be blessed six.

              • “We do not need an intercessor. We are the intercessor we seek.”

                Humanism is your religion.

                My fundamental faith is in Jesus Christ.
                He is my intercessor.
                I can do nothing by or for myself.
                I need Him.
                You need Him.
                He is the first and best prep.

                • Jesus never wanted to be what he has become. A creation in the minds of men used as a means to control.

                  Who better to benefit from the turn the other cheek line in the bible (77 x 7 or some ridiculous #) than our very own elite slave handlers.

                  If you really believe jesus is the only prep you need you are being foolish and our a liar. More than likely you have food and supplies stored up just in case.

                  If you really wanted to rely on faith you would have only what you needed to get by on a daily basis. No more, no less.

                  Of course the old adage of christians goes like this: god helps those who help themselves. Which if you are doing all the work, then who is really helping you?

                  We are the intercessor between practicing good and evil. We make the choice. Not your jesus.

                  • RJ, i didn’t say Jesus is the only prep you need”…

                    I believe I said “He is the first and best prep.”

                    And yes I have food and supplies stored up.

                    Pr 21:20 ¶ There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.

                    Pr 22:3 ¶ A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished (suffer for it).


                  • Can you tell me where in The Bible I can find: “god helps those who help themselves…”?

                    • it says god helps those who help themselves MANY places in the bible….just not in THOSE words

            • Why prep if Religion will save you??? Bwhahahaaa. Jebus has been a no show for 2000 yrs. You been stood up, and the fools keep on believing. I would NEVER trust a hoax. Not one person has ever been saved or granted everlasting life. If so, prove it, or STFU STOOPID CULT SHEEP!!


        • Charlie2 , so what if someone believes in a religion or a God . Are they hurting your pathetic life style ? I think not , it’s there choice so don’t go knocking down people just because they don’t side with you! What a hypocrite you are ! Looks like the scum of the earth has landed on the comments section! For the rest of you don’t listen to them , do your thing if it’s prepping or believing in God or what ever and screw the na Sayers

        • i had an issue with this concept until a pastor once broke it down for me. how can a little baby be sinful?

          think of the way a small child acts:
          shelfish. everything is about them, their wants trump their parents needs. you can give a baby a full belly of milk and a comfy crib and an hour later, baby is grumpy because it wants its belly topped off. want outweighing others needs. humans all act like this until our parents teach us to be more mindful of other peoples needs and wants.

          we dont pop out of the womb being good at sharing, or compassion. it has to be learned. hence original sin.

          • That pastor must be the stupidest bastard to ever walk the Earth. Yeah right, look at all those SINS a baby commits, you should have pissininthewind condemn them all to hell for such flagrant behavior. And you wonder why more and more people walk away from you nuts every day.

          • Babies are born that way in order to survive. If they did not let someone know they needed food, a diaper change, to be held and loved, they would not get the attention their emotional brains and physical bodies need.

            The pastor that called babies selfish is a mean spirited man. I feel very sorry for his children.

            To be selfish means to put your needs ahead of others. This is an adult trait not a trait of a helpless infant who cannot do anything for themselves.

            If you have ever observed a group of small children and babies you will see it is in their nature to share and to feel empathy and emotions from the adults around them.

            Selfishness is a learned trait that comes as a child grows and watches and learns from those raising him/her. What you said about people not popping out of the womb being good and compassionate is NOT TRUE. Have you ever been around 1, 2, 3, etc years olds?

            Most will share without being forced to. Can sense if a person is upset and will offer comfort if someone is hurt. This comes naturally to them, Without prompting.

            Although a baby cannot communicate they are still learning and watching. Everything. Absorbing it and becoming most like the people they are around all of the time.

            Sure there are some babies born with brain issues from trauma at birth, etc. That will never be normal, but these are anomalies. Not the norm.

            Watch next time you are out in public parents with their children. Most are not even paying attention to them. Too busy texting, tweeting, what have you.

            I pity this generation of children and what they will become: emotionally distant, vacant, self absorbed and all learned from those they most interacted with (or don’t interact with).

            These same parents will never accept responsibility for what their child becomes as they grow up.

            Don’t you see how your bible and your pastor (a man you believe is the ultimate authority on god) has twisted the truth about people. All because the bible says so.

            So many people have been screwed with because of fanatical, fundamental parents who used the bible as a tool of punishment and a way to lash out and justify their anger, hatred of themselves and their own lives.

            • RJ,

              That was very well put, much better than I did. You’re right, children learn behavior from adults, either good or bad, but sorry to say more often than not it’s the bad kind. Religion has been used as the stick without the carrot approach, more than likely parents that had it foisted upon themselves turn and use the same type of fear and prejudice on their children until hopefully something comes along to break the cycle of living in fear, both of their fellow man and their god, although they will claim with their dying death somehow it’s all some kind of ” love” they’ve tried to bestow, it’s really a sad situation.

      10. Get proficient in starting a camp fire using at least three different methods. Flint and steel, friction(bow and drill), ferro rod, and magnifying glass/sun. Watched a video yesterday where one guy took a clear plastic bottle filled with water and used sunlight through the water bottle to heat up newspaper and got a fire going. Another guy used the a polished end of a simple empty aluminum coke can and reflected the sun on a piece of Char-cloth and got a fire started. Guy used toothpaste to polish up the end of the can. And last don’t forget the simple, durable, Bic lighter.

      11. PRAY should not be #14 (last). It should be #1. Contrary to most peoples everyday thinking, this all will come to an end at some point for everyone – no matter how well you prep.

        • Yep

      12. Gee, now thats and intersting article?

        Get ready for Mad Max. A few agency ass clown trolls just advised the shtf-effers. Hcks is insane and does not know what he is talking about. Well, i barely survived the shemitah, of 2008. That Bayou water was looking good in Houston in 2013, as i started to reseach water filtration. Not even 2 weeks and look at what those muslim and dred lock animals are doing already. Stupid insane me, did a search on the CIA search engine, GOOGLE.COM and found this very site, the shtfplan.com and just realized that i had no plan. No wonder i was walking in the streets starving and hungry. Interestingly my gut was full once i decided to prep and will be full this time around as i take it, & took it to the next level.

        Euro Dred Lock attack. Coming to a city near you.


        Oh, now my scientist friend is a fake, what could possibly go wrong, i am having issues with women. And get this, government loves me.



        I know, the gold is not here, the trolls will tell you, i have not clue as to whats going. I know, they man who wrote One Second is also a fake, eh.

        • Hcks,

          Actually right now I’m wondering why the fuck you ran away from the direct question I put to you on the last article to come to the new thread and spew more drivel? I’m sure everybody here would like to hear your answer to my previous question, but for some reason or another you just can’t manage to do it, can you? Like I said, more and more people are wising up to your little games and soon you’ll only be left with three idiots who can’t bring themselves to admit you’ve duped them for as long as you have. Now go and meet with your secret friends and JFK, because YOU know for a fact he’s still alive, shooting dredlox zombies with his Mossberg 590 and doling out devastating Kung Fu kicks to the head! KKKKKEEEEEEEYYYAAAAAHHHHHHH zombies!

          • That’s hilarious

        • But you did survive the Shemitah of 2014 😉

      13. Dave Hodges: I’m here to tell in the YEAR 2525. It’s getting to be a joke, Anyone with an IQ 2 points above a rock knows a collapse is coming and what they should do to prepare for it. Alas many people are dumber than a rock and they need to be taken out of the gene pool. So many who claim to be in the KNOW are blowing their creditability more every day. Yes I’m put my FRN on the year 2525. Mac I’m sorry but you’re fast approaching a creditability problem with continuing to post this SH~T from these people. IMHO.

        • hcks, your desperation is now becoming more obvious with each comment you post. This is a new tactic for you, now you claim that people who point out you’re an obvious raving fool are now suddenly unemployed and have nothing better to do than attack you. Of course, YOU have your own business, handling real estate and insurance contracts I believe is what you’ve claimed in prior posts. Sure, I mean really, what’s so hard to believe about a guy who can barely write above the 5th grade level drawing up and reading legal contracts for people to sign? Hey. call me crazy but am I the only one here who questions this somewhat obvious contradiction? Tell you what hcksy, when I sell my house and move to Texas, I’ll trust YOU to handle all the contracts, ok? And on the day that happens, Niburu will be a permanent fixture in my backyard, and I’ll have you, Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, scientist friend, and all your other secret buddies over for some good old Texas style barbecue, you can bring the crazy sauce because it’s the recipe you’re the expert on, so in closing, I’ll simply use your prior dreadlock zombie code of ” oobie, oobie!” Keep us posted Hcks!

          • Just some computer generated horseshit from the deep recesses of some pimple faced teenager’s basement who got tired of playing computer games.

        • When you had your own “shtf” event, did you by chance hit your head cause a diagnosed or un diagnosed brain injury?,or do you sit. And snort coke all day and read fear porn? Seriously I need to know

      15. #15. stop listening to dave hodges

        • FACT: The Clinton’s are psychopaths.

      18. Look at what the people in Venezuela and put yourself in a position to deal with what they are dealing with.

        That’s all you have to do.

      19. It’s good to complain. Nobody should leave a blog just because people mess with you. Don’t leave because you can’t say much about a certain demographic. Even I have recently been restricted (once so far). It’s good to know when you push the limits. It’s a test. If you can’t take this stuff what are you going to do when the SHTF?

      20. Ok, so maybe theres some good info in this piece, have no idea,
        As soon as i see the words Dave Hodges and credible source on the same page im done reading anything but the comments.
        Some people in the alt media world have put out so much hot air they could be blamed for global warming.

        • Take what Hodges says with a grain of salt. Purely for entertainment value. Case in point: He says, “If you are retiring soon, take the lump sum option and convert all of these retirement monies to survival supplies and gold which you will need as the world emerges from the crash.”

          How stupid would following that advice be if no SHTF happens during your retirement?

          • Taking your retirement funds and converting them into precious metals and canned goods would be the stupidest thing anyone ever did in their life, short of going to jail or choosing to be born in Zimbabwe.

            You prep with your discretionary funds, not your nest egg. Hodge’s is giving totally insane advice.

        • How’s the VOG? The comments here are very interesting. How is your bee population? I’m thinking of buying some. They seem to be very rare this summer.

          • We have actually had quite a few bees, not huge numbers but bee n seeing them pretty regular, im looking into getting a couple hives as well, just makes sense, have a big ohia tree right next to the house, always covered with lehua blossoms, good for the bees.
            Vog not as bad today, trades are coming back, been pretty wet, humid, no wind, today at least has a slight breeze. Just another shitty day in paradise! ;0)

      21. Hey Dave you do know that Ray Charles is dead right…?

      22. So if I want to pay cash for a house or a used car, you’re telling me I can’t.


        That’s lovely. So money is now useless?

        • I’ve always bought cars for cash from private owners because that was my only option. Dealers are very selective about who they do business with.

        • Depends, if you are buying a place in the mountains or country that is FSBO and not hundreds of thousands you most likely could, hell, if you have the cash and find the property you most likely can as well, where it becomes a problem is if you are going through realtors and banks etc.
          the establishment is the problem.

          • Kula, county auctions are another option. I’ve explored that on occasion myself. Just haven’t found anything I like.

      23. Build a network of beautiful, young women. I do not joke. Beautiful, young women are a precious commodity in a shtf. They can work in the sex trade for you; they can work in your business, from bars, to gambling, to food: whatever, having beautiful women working for you gives you the edge.

        Keep them fit and healthy, dress them well. It will pay dividends.

        • Franks Thoughts

          If I could build a network of Beautiful Women, I sure would teach them how to fight and fire any type of weapon they came across. Sure as hell you would not want to called them Pussies.

          • Train them to be spies and assassins. Gatherer’s of intel.

        • Don’t forget the ‘cillins in your medical preps.

          They’ll be bringin’ STDs back to camp with them.

          • Yep. Hazard of the mission. Provide protection.

      24. FYA, becarefull man, the agency ass clown trolls will be attacking you. What you just posted are serious facts of life. Now she wants to be president. Can you imagine that the Red list will then commense. I guess the cop deaths will tell the American people about the Blue list.
        Get ready for a pandemic of ass clown attacks. Good point Prophet. I can take the heat.

        I did’nt back down, Even with the russian breathing down my neck 2 yrs ago in the Galleria has not stopped me from commenting.

        Life has taught me that turning you back on problems do not make them go away. Life has also taught me when i was a kid and teenager and in my 20’s, that if you let people attack you verbally, physically, they will keep going and they will not back down until you stand up to that bully. Government is a bully that we must stand up to and you will experience hell on earth, if you turn your back on them. Had most of us not wake up, our bones would have already been at the bottom of mass graves in our cities.

        I do not kneel. i don not kiss ass, i do not put up with bullsh….t not will be take it up the ass from foreign troops, not will i take it from demestic ones either.


        • I would think the opposite of you. You believe people like Hodges and his JH 15 without question. You believed his Chinese troop buildup on the Mexican border without question. You were going to move to Colorado because TX was going to be under something like 15 feet of water because your scientist told you that. Economic collapse, nibiru, You haven’t questioned anything. In fact you attack people that do question it. Does that sound like a free thinker, a critical thinker?
          You certainly sound like someone who kneels. A lot.

        • HCKS, that’s the spirit. I’m the same way. I’ve been coming here for 3 years and no troll has ever driven me away.

          • That’s a rite thar cuz! dun let nun o’them ole trolls run yer sorry ass offn a here, we needs stoopid tools like yerself cause t;otherwise we be’s a needin to git a laff elsewhar.An ole cuz always say he gots one o’them high iq’s, er ickeys, or t’wahtever it is but he don’t like to use it much cause it dun gives him reel bad headaches, one time he was a gonna shoot hisself in the haid to let sum o’ that presshur out but ole granpappy took his shotgun away befur he could do it.

          • That’s because these are your only friends here.

      25. Hey SGT. Dale, I saw on a back post about some 7.62x54R ammo. Do you have a91/30? I have (3) 91/30’s. 2 are 1938 Izzy’s. 1 is a 1944. And 1 of the 1938’s were not issued. The rifling is like new, and I get a 1/2 inch grouping at 100 yards at the shooting range. I’m ready for practicing my prepping on the Muslims when they start in on Americans, when they get hear. Thats not something to look forward too, but I guess that we have too.I love the smell of gun powder in the morning. On SQ’s website. The muslims are already raping women in Germany. I think its very inhuman to allow these poor people too have too go through life with their brains located under their penis in their testicles. I think that this is a form of inhumane treatment too this minority class of people, Muslims. What would be worse for these poor Muslims would be shit for brains.

        • T. REX
          Yes I have 3 91/30’s two of them are parts guns that I sporterized 20″ barrels with a 10/22 muzzle break (little work on the break with a dremel tool) long eye relief scopes. One has an Arch Angle and one with a Hogue over mold stock. Damn things shoot as good and my 308’s sniper rifles. I have one 91/30 Like brand new. Nothing changed on it. I also have a M44 parts gun that shoot very well. 3/4″ group at 100 yards. It shots great also. I like the 148/149 grain rounds. They seem to shoot the best.

          It is their belief that they have the right to rape a woman that has a short skirt on or she doesn’t have her head covered. All I can say if one of those turds does anything to one of my family (woman). They won’t have to worry about a court date. I can almost bet he has an accident. Karma’s a BITCH!


          • T
            Forgot the Finish M39. This thing shoots so good I would like to put a scope on it. If I did I would ruin the gun and the amount I could ask for it.

      26. 1. The Creation of a Pseudo-Identity

        This is a concern I really struggled with. I have a concealed handgun license and a HAM radio license.

        When things get shitty, the government may really clamp down and come after people, now I am on a list of people that have guns and people that can communicate outside of government control.

        Two very dangerous things to a tyrannical government.

        • Those are two things you won’t need after SHTF. Ditch them and use somebody else’s name and DOB if stopped.

      27. I have mastered the use of smoke signals. The feds can’t tell what I’m saying. Unfortunately, neither can anyone else.

        • Prophet, funniest thing I have read in weeks…


        • FOR YOU, PROPHET:

          An Indian chief is driving his Cadillac somewhere at Nevada. Suddenly his car gets broken. He examines it, and reveals that a technician must be called. But the chief has only $4, and no credit card (unfortunately B-) ). So he gathers some wood, makes a fire and signals his tribe with its smoke: “Hey, send somebody to my location with $500!” The tribe accepts this signal, but to make sure in its meaning, signals back – once again, with the smoke:

          “OK, chief, but why so much ?”

          At this moment a ground test of nuclear bomb is being held on the test field nearby. A huge mushroom-like cloud of smoke rises into the sky… The tribe signals:

          “Ok, Ok, chief, we just wondered, why to be so angry?”

      28. “If you are retiring soon, take the lump sum option and convert all of these retirement monies to survival supplies and gold which you will need as the world emerges from the crash.”

        To follow this advice would be the height of stupidity.


        Frank, youR comments may offend some of the women preppers on this site, You might be accused of having issues with women. But then again, why give a rats ass, yet findings facts are a fact of life. Women who marry succesfull men, are professional Whores and live in prostitutes. As SHTF COMMENSES, and the unprepped, Porsche drivers, suddenly realize that their is only 3 days of food and a gallon water. Within 3 days, since the gladiator metro sexual idoitic Benze driver, not to mention the tipical Heart Surgion, will not be a provider, when shtf stikes.
        The super models will suddenly start to convince themselves, that fat white men with bairds, lots of food, water and ammo will make the studly, muscular athletic sports car driving idiots look like a joke, within 3 dys, those muscles wont have crap to run on, since i am one of these types, however i am a prepper stud, big difference. The fat prepper type men with bairds and fire power will live lavish lifestyles with beautiful women, any amount of them, as the beauties throw themselves at us. What i tell my prepper fat older red neck types is that not to worry if your single, by June of 2016, if we last that long. You will be able to pick and choose any beauty you want. Then that brings up the next analogy.

        Over weight un prepped women, a BIG PROBLEM.

        Why on Gods good earth should be carry the weight of Fat overweight larger women in post shtf, eating up my freez dried food. They can’t fight, they can’t shoot, they cant’t do crap.

        The Good, fat all American prepper chicks, sorry beauties, i will take the fat prepper women any day. If you all think this is Crazy, see Mad Max Fury. Its was all about resource commodity women, that was scarce. Its not a wonder how my scientist friend explained to me about women becoming exintinct in the future. Women do get what they deserve, they made them selves extinct and ended thier lives by being stupid, by not preparing, creating conditions for thier very demise. Alot of good men are out there, yet if they try to get and attractive woman, the women is usually rude and disrespectfull of them, and these men woule protect them, yet they choose the men with money. Most men with money do not prep. One lady post recently how she saw these studly bodybuilder types who also do not prep and found them laughable. I would think that athletes would be smart enought to secure preps, yet they do nothing.

        Good looking women are some of the most rudest, ignorant people i have ever come across. As a stud looker, metro worker by day, Red neck post work as i either head to the gym , of jump into cammo. I can honestly tell you, i would not even tolerate them post shtf. Whenever attracive women approach me, i usually avoid them, and they find it strange. They dont know why, but i have my reason. The conservations and discussions and to listen to them talk about thier wants, needs and future based on what the facts are as far as what preppers like us know about, it makes no sense to even sit with them and listen to them. They are so bad, they disrespect men, accuse them of sexual harrasment, threaten men all the time, igore men, etc.

        They have priced themselves out of the market and post shtf means a barter market, and they only thing left for these types is exactly what Frank Thoughts just outlined. Women have destoryed their own future on Planet Earth. They have literally written their death sentence in a post calapse Future. We are responsible for creating our future. Good job ladies.



        You can trust Hollywood to show you what they have planned, Mad Max shows you what to expect.

        • Holy shit you really are a whack job aren’t you please for the love of christ and all that holy tell us you DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO FIREARMS I sincerely hope you do not have anyone looking to you for safety especially small children

          • John, I would guess he has access to them but isn’t very good handling them.
            I would guess that HCKs is of average body type, not the fantastic weight lifter that he portrays himself, nor versed in any kind of martial arts. He would be bragging about what he can do has done, not telling people here what he will do the next time it happens.
            He has a strong need to be accepted, but he isn’t by most people. This need drives him to be a follower.
            He isn’t dangerous acting on his own thoughts, although he seems a bit schizophrenic, what would make him dangerous is that strong need to be accepted. Through that he can be easily manipulated and would follow someone elses’ orders without questioning.

            • I see a couple of trolls running down HCKS. Are they the ones I think they are?

              • You’se a prolly rite thar cuz, but than agin ya’ll will be the last damned idjit on this here site to figger out hcks is full o’ shit, muusa be that thar hi iq thang you’s always blabberin’ bout sum.

            • I’m actually grateful for the experience after shtf its a real possibility were all going to at some point meet someone just lucid enough to pass as sane many I fear will fall prey to the like of him. Good reminder BEWARE WOLF IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING

              • I wanna BE the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

                • Don’t worry about me. I gonna be Bat Shit Crazy.

        • HCKS

          Holy smokes. I guess you burnt your bridges on that topic.

          • Slingshot; I think he is Acid’s brother.

            • Jim, HCKS couldn’t possibly be related to acid. HCKS makes a lot more sense than acid ever thought about doing.

              • Paul Bart Mall Cop, such a narcissist, everyone else is crazy but me, HCKS, and my female cuz in Georgia.

        • Well hcks,

          I see that you’ve managed to post several other bullshit laden rants and STILL you refuse to answer the EXTREMELY simple question I asked you earlier about you and your good, real deal buddy,usasecuritygaurd? What seems to be the problem hcks, cat got your tongue? The longer you run away from me without answering will convince even the most idiotic of your staunch supporters that indeed you’re full of shit and always have been, you’re convincing more of them daily.

        • HCKS, spot on about the women. I haven’t even dated anyone in 10 years and don’t even give a shit about it anymore. All I care about now is continuing prepping for what’s coming.

          • That thar’s bullsheet cuz, ya’ll dun got female cuz preggars las time ya’ll wuz down at the bol.

          • Just find another looking for her green card

        • I agree hcks, I have a good woman who is a mean lean prepping machine but plan on being like men of old in bible with many beautiful woman around me.

          • Sure you do, and all these beautiful women will just be lining up for losers like you, braindead, and hcks. Wow, no wonder you like hcks so much, you’re as big a freakin nutcake as he is!

      30. Withdrawing Your Money From the Bank

        I’ve never had any problem withdrawing money from a bank. The clerks are always very polite and prompt, usually saying, “Please, Please just take it and don’t kill me.”

      31. 4o1K’s, IRA, et al

        If you were 100% convinced of an imminent crash, you would be foolish not to take your money out. However, the prepayment penalty of 50% is steep if you withdraw your funds before you are 59.5 years old.

        It is 30%, not 50%. Starting to doubt this person’s credibility.

        • Add taxes, makes it 40-50% for me.

      32. I go for a financial system crash with 6 weeks to three months down time before things get partially moving again with real unemployment at 50-60% and a not so rosy future for many Western countries.

      33. John Stiner, you are correct. The investment boys who run these firms, locally are in alot of cities, are taking note. They have been finding out lately that customers are pulling out everything, cashing out from the fraudulant banking schemes. So some of these people like that idiot, who commented above you earlier, is worried about crasing and burning, loosing his job, his firm, etc. As everyday people wake up and are refered to Hodges, Quayle, Stfplan.com, they then read the facts, go back to work, see the production for June & July of this year, in the companies they are working for and are sitting in meetings hearing about the last layoff of over 150,000 oil employees and expats globally in the last 30 days. I am friends with one of the biggest recruiters, and these layoffs are facts. Things are slow now, so they listen to us, then they act, begin to prep, and then they start to pull out of the system, pulling 401k, which is nothing that a set up to bail out the bankers are the people expense.

        Its not a wonder how i have been told that i am must on crack, pills, drugs off all kinds, etc. These idiots that work in finance have alot to loose, as they get literally liquidated by thier customers in mass. They, the trolls, are on here doing damage control, think that by posting crap about fire arms and kids is going suddenly scare me off this site.

        Hey dumbasses., i have cop friends who know me well that can speak on my bahalf, so shut the f…k and go eat sh…t. You think most cops are stupid, they are 100% on to your b..llsh….t. The gold deposit Bank will be opening soon in Texas. If your able to leave your state, do so while you can, and bring your metal assests down here so that we can print more of our new gold backed Texas Currency and cancel the Texas calapse. By doing this, we will be able to access the oil and multimineral resources of the earth minerals, merge that commodity with the Gold and metals, as a total commodity package and present Texas to the offshore traders what our currency is backed by real metal assets to offset calapse in our city, allowing Texas to develope out farm lands, stop the feds from chemtrailing our skys with toxic garbage, and kick out the major gorcery store chains and then invest in HEB, to be the biggest organic producer of organic and grass fed meat produce, further improving the heath of the people and our children and shut down the mexican border in the process. So they can keep coming on here calling me names. You troll have lost the info we. We hold the tactical ground on this site, so piss off trolls.



      34. I travel constantly for work so always get a heads up on where things are going. I just got back from Europe. Was taking a walk on the beach and looked out to sea: what did I see? Container boats and container boats, all parked offshore. The last time I saw that was in 2009 in Turkey when the whole global economic system came to a stop. It’s on dudes.

        My views on the role of women in shtf are not shared because I do not respect women (on the contrary) but are just based on first-hand experience in many shtf scenarios. I have seen women, pretty women, reduced to the sex trade over and over again. It is just what happens. It is the most obvious commodity they have to trade. Social justice lesbians can fume and shout, but facts are facts.

        • Oh, don’t worry Frank, those ships are loaded with commodes the govt ordered from my company to accommodate all the Muslims that are being shipped in by Barry Obowellsack. They are dual use toilets that can be shit in or used to wash up their nasty feet for Friday prayers.

        • EU economy is in the crapper. The cheap Chinese stuff in the stores isn’t selling, so the ships aren’t unloading.

          Check out the Baltic dry goods index, the cost of shipping is dropping like a rock. The price of oil did drop which helps shippers, but no one buying the cheap Chinese junk is a really bad sign for the economy and shipping.

          German economy is clearly going into recession, which is too bad because the EU was expecting Germany to bail out failing Europe. Germany had been the one powerhouse economy for years, but that is now over!

      35. I’ve been following his posts they just make no sence whatsoever. Just get a uber creepy vib from that guy/girl /tans gender/ (don’t want to excluded ) or maybe he’s an official representative of the niburu government ……. any thoughts opinions. Seriously what would any of us do if we encountered this guy in an shtf scenario. This is a real possibility. Friend or foe

        • john,

          You have little, if anything to be concerned about regarding our resident idiot hcks, He runs away from a QUESTION for God’s sake, much less anything physical. He’ll never pass the stage of internet ranting, at that point it will all become way to real for him to deal with. No, it’s safest for him to dwell in the secret offices where all the insider secret friends are to keep him warm and safe, and most importantly, away from reality.

        • I wouldn’t worry about him what so ever. I have followed him for entertainment only and because he is an interesting psych study.
          He has never said anything about survival except freeze dried and canned food. Novice on water purification. Won’t talk about weaponry except to parrot what others are saying.
          When he runs out of food and finds he has no talent, he will become one of those women he rants against above.

          If I had to make a prediction he would join some sort of gang in order to survive. Be a “yes man”. They will send him to a situation that they themselves are afraid to enter.

      36. Frank your right on, it happens eveytime.


        Hey guys, check out this link and see what just got send out to the parenst in NY. The school is telling parents to prepare bugout bags for something coming up. Potential false flag in the works.? The letter is litearlly on this link to read. Check this out, now what on Gods earth is that suppose to mean.



      37. SGT Dale, the one that was not issued, I put a Brass Stacker scope mount on it W/ a long eye relief scope. Very accurate rifle. (4) spam cans of 440 rounds each will keep me stocked up for a while. If you are looking for some land to get lost in, northern MN is an ideal place, where I live. Take care, stay safe, Rex

        • Question: I have used the ol’mans firearms since I was about 6 99% of all the game we took was with the model 94 . Recently I treated myself to a nice new shiny Remington 770.
          What can i expect this rifle to do mid grade factory loads 100 gr bullet 20″heavy stainless came with factory scope? Reason I ask is I’ve always been taught no substitute for a full. 30cal bullet.

          • John
            I need to know more about what caliber?
            I can tell you a little about the 300 Win Mag that my wife has compared to my 700 Remington.

            Her rifle will shoot my reloads of 180Gr. Boat Tail Soft Points around 3/4″ to 1-1/4″ at 100 yards. Where my 700 will shot 1/2 to 1″ groups. Her scope is not quite as good as mine but it is still a very good scope, Her’s is a Bushnell and mine is a Nikon.

            A 100gr. bullet is a too light for the 308-30/06-300 Win mag. 308 works better with a 150 to 165Gr. the 30/06 works better with the 165 to 180 Gr. and the 300 Win works better with a 180 to 200 Gr. slug. This is what I have found to be true with my rifles.

            I hope this helps.

      38. Over at the Sheeple

        Will Texas have a vote on secession on the ballot?

        • Are the words symbolic in the article? The one I read said that it was going to be on the republican ballot and was non binding and symbolic.
          This shit has been going on since the 1990’s. Google it.

      39. Is this even plausible.

        If Texas does break away. Then will the Federal funds stop to those on assistance. If so, can we expect a migration of the Free Shit Army to other states to maintain governmental assistance.

        Get rid of the dead weight.

      40. Pray,pray,and keep praying for wisdom and discernment in how to behave during and after an economic collapse.

        Repent of all sin to God through Jesus Christ. A good relationship with God is essential during an economic collapse. A person can have all the preps in the world, but does that person have the mental and physical strentgh and endurance that will be required for everything associated with an economic collapse in America?

        All power, strength, and mercies are with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. May God be with you all

      41. Can’t say I agree with this article, especially the part about paying off debt. If the banking cartels are gonna steal my retirement I’m not going to protect the bank by paying off my auto, credit cards or home!! Fact is I’d do the exact opposit and use every bit of credit I have before they shut everything down.

        Think about your unsecured lines of credit and credit cards and how much you could spend. Do you have $5,000, $10,000, $100,000? What preps would you buy? I know this for my self, even $5,000 could put me out another 3 years with food. I’m someone who is already prepared, but the lines of credit can put me out years or help more family members and friends survive. Post collapse your gonna need lots of friends and family to work and provide security.

        • The problem is that no one knows, except the PTB and even they probably don’t know with certainty, what exactly is going to go down in the future. Without a crystal ball, I personally believe in preparing for all possible outcomes. Paying your bills, keeping your good credit, and buying provisions in the event of job loss, personal crisis such as poor health, flood, and fire. Also, I believe in preparing for other possibilities such as natural disaster, war, and financial collapse/hyperinflation. I do not believe in letting these possibilities causing me to reject the very real possibility that nothing bad is going to happen. In the event that all crisis are avoided, I must prepare to keep my life on track. Good credit, paying off creditors so I am not saddled with credit card debt or any debt is liberating.

      42. An interesting thing happened to me a couple weeks ago. Hot weather, flip flops and sandals, and too much walking equals a heel spur. Ouch! A somewhat innocent activity – but one that could easily happen in a SHTF scenario — and all of a sudden my mobility is chopped way back. Any ideas of humping an 80 pound pack through the woods just went out the window. The lesson I learned was that things ‘break’ – including me – and that you better have a backup.

      43. I have giant bug zapper like bars installed on all of my windows and have already had success watching burglars fry to death when they try to get into my house. One fat guy screamed for 10 minutes before he finally stopped. He burned like bacon grease for 2 or three hours, while stuck on the window screen. I scraped him off the next day and had to repaint part of the window sill.

        • And. Another one lol did you also climb the bean stalk slay the giant a.d steal his preps.
          Seriously you expect the intelligent folks here believe that story. Your story holds about as much water as that screen door you supposedly left the fried guy stuck too. I call BULLSHIT

        • Interesting

        • Can they be modified for my bug out vehicle ?

      44. I want them to take my $ from my bank so I can seek revenge and organize others that suffered losses. These banksters can’t possibly think people won’t come for their heads. The $ I put away is not for the greater good. This is where I will draw the line. Get rid of the useless eaters and everything will get better I guarantee it. In nature the weak die early on this is the way shit should be but bleeding hearts for the weak want us all to pay to support useless eaters. Let’s put emotions down and use logic for once. Any help they get should be from voluntary compassion not forced support.

      45. Good article.

        The comments about banks reporting suspicious transactions is all too true. We’ve been quizzed up and down for moving money from account at bank A to bank B because this year bank B is paying higher interest. Bank A wanted to know where the money was going, and bank B wanted to know where it came from for their government reports.

        Patriot act laws instituted crazy banking regulations that were meant to prevent private funding of terrorism, and criminal money laundering. The word is 95% of the convictions under these laws have nothing to do with terrorism or even violent criminal activity.

        This is very serious stuff, they have made many aspects of normal daily American life illegal. I recommend people read up on these laws, and how they are being used against average Americans, especially small business. People are losing everything.

        The latest pattern of government abuse is to confiscate all your assets that makes it impossible for people to hire a lawyer to protect them from government abuse or petition for the return of assets.

        Asset forfeiture laws combined with patriot act banking regulations mean that the government only needs to make the accusation, confiscate your assets, and you are financially destitute, and guilty until you can afford a lawyer!

      46. Tried to read through the comments. …..did anyone catch the reference to Hodges other article where he’s privy to a terrorist plot but can’t give any details? Arrests supposedly made, but he’s on the inside and can’t give specifics. What a pile….

      47. Why is everyone so concerned about with paying off your mortgage let them come try to take my home in a collapse…there will be no courts to foreclose on your home no credit card tactical response teams when an egg cost 1 million dollars your house payment is not going to matter to anyone. No economy=no debt if confidence in the dollar goes away so will any digital debt. Worry about people coming to take your food , women and children (in no particular order)

      48. Brave, lolong, thanks for the support. These idiotic Agency ass clown trolls think that they can run me off. They are getting very desperate. I had a slow day at work today so I decided to post while time allows.. I don’t ever post crap..they think that thing crap about me will stop the fact that the a Texas Hold is here, I wonder what the trolls will do once this gets out



        • Same thing we did before. Laugh our asses off.

        • hcks,

          If you actually have a job, what the fuck are you doing up at 1.47 in the morning making posts on an internet chat board? Your stupidity is becoming a real laugher, keep up the good work nutty.

      49. OK. Been lurking around this shtfplan page for a while, and yes, doom and gloom articles appear frequently. I have, also, noticed the same disclaimer the whole time… “don’t say we didn’t warn you.”

        The boy that cried wolf??? Yeah, I get it. My motion detectors go off on my property a lot. Most times it is a cat, or a squirrel, or the water/sewer guy. A couple times they have alerted me to trespassers, though. The alarms help keep me vigilant. Just like this webpage.

        Yes, this particular article is sounding the alarm…
        But re-reading the same material doesn’t bother me.
        Being reminded about what hasn’t happened, yet, doesn’t bother me.
        Trolls and feral cats don’t bother me, either. But the feces they leave behind does. Just because I can’t stand the smell, doesn’t mean I will quit checking the alarms.

        As for what might be valuable to others after SHTF, besides food, water, security, and shelter???

        History has taught us that any inventory containing booze, weed, pharmaceuticals/street drugs, and/or vaginas will be in demand no matter what the cause of any collapse.

        Prep according to YOUR needs, and rotate through your inventory.

        And remember…. Always be armed.

        • good post, ben. welcome, and thanks for contributing!

          • TY BCOD.

            It’s nice to known that the sounding board is listening.

          • Hey buttcrack,

            What’s all this about the big welcome, he’s not new to this board by any means, he’s posted a lot in the past.

            • he said he was lurking, implying he doesn’t post much…..and i don’t hang on every word on SHTFPLAN anymore, since we lost the thumbs, so i don’t know what he’s posted here….so i say again…good post, ben. welcome, and thanks for contributing!

      50. Dog food does not store. It goes bad quickly.

      51. I was wondering when this old headline would be back, it’s been almost three months since we were told what we have to do to prepare

        • well, fortunately, he didn’t write the article for YOU….and there’s LOTS of people reading this that HAVEN’T seen it yet….and i even saw a new one on there i never thought about before,….so thanks mac, for puttin’ out the word!….i fully believe that there are new people waking up from their stupor every day, and there better be some people out there to educate them…just remember, every person that reads this and gets educated, is one less person knockin’ down doors when it all comes unglued(not that it aint ALREADY unglued, mind yuh!)

          • buttcrack, typical; soccer dad, has his head up his buttcrak

      52. I have read some of the most rediculous, insane, and stupid comments on this site lately. It appears that too much truth can be dangerous. So TPTB send in their people to make us all look foolish. I know that no one is right all the time. I am certainly no exception. When I am given more and better information, I simply change my mind. I change my opinion. Some people critize this. They call it wobbling. But this is how Science works. You start with an idea (hypothesis). A little data (facts) are accumulated and your hypothesis is elevated to a Theory. When experimentation predicted in your Theory proves your original idea is either correct or not, your Theory either becomes a fact or it is trashed altogether. Sometimes to arise again as yet another Theory when new information revives the old Theory.

        In the spirit of light heartedness take this with a grain of salt and journey into my imagination for a moment. We really know little about Obama’s birth. He said that “if I had a son he would look like Trayvon”. Since hearing that, I keep thinking how little Obama resembles his biological father. And how much Obama resembles that tall thin Muslim civil rights leader Malcom X.

        Don’t crucify me. It’s just a crazy idea that keeps me up nights. Add it to the rest of the bullshit.

        • don’t know quite how to respond to that one……how’bout THUMBS UP!

      53. I’m so tired of these moronic, sophomoric “experts” advising everyone to get rid of debt in case of financial collapses. They offer this ridiculous advice while advocating defending your home and property with deadly force. I hardly think that anyone is going to be prepared to shoot their neighbor, but let Freddie Mac kick them out of their home.

      54. Don’t agree with #5. If there is an economic collapse there will be no foreclosures nor repossessions.

        • so, we all will get to live in our houses that aren’t paid for….what a wonderful idea!….i don’t KNOW AJ, but maybe you shouldn’t believe everything you THINK??

      55. I’m not loosing half my money in penalties to do anything. Should be called the NonSense Show.
